Andrew Morris has left Nationwide to become finance director at Leek United Building Society.
He was previously head of finance business partnering at Nationwide Building Society and has over 20 years’ experience in financial services. He is also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Accountants in England and Wales.
Morris has spent more than 12 years gaining experience in a number of roles with the RBS Group. This included four years as chief financial officer and chief operating officer of Middle East and Africa, based in Dubai, and as head of strategic cost management at Coutts private bank.
Morris said: “In many ways, there are parallels with my studies and the work I now do; it’s about assimilating and making sense of a vast amount of data, and condensing it down to what really matters and being able to effectively communicate those messages.
“I am very much looking forward to being a part of the executive team, helping to make the decisions that drive the Society forward and giving something back to the local community at the same time.”
